Interesting that Inbox isn't yet supported on Edge. Gmail works fine, but not Gmail.

If this article is correct and Google does intend to increase offline functionality for Chromebooks, then I would like to see it encourage manufacturers to ship devices with at least 4 GB of RAM. For power users, that capability should have the capacity to increase to 8 GB.
Critics of the Chromebook mistakenly believe that once offline, users can’t do anything. This isn’t true and Google is taking steps to make that clear.

"But..if I start my document on my home wifi then finish it on a hotspot or 4G is it a seamless transition."

+Nate Schmolze  Well Nate, if that was a question, my answer would be, Yes, it is a seamless transition.  I regularly keep 3 or 4 documents open on my Samsung 303 ARM and edit them offline, and when I get to a WiFi hot spot, sync kicks in and "Everything is saved to Drive".  Never lost a character of text in 23 months of use.  YMMV

After three hours and multiple attempts, all my documents, photos, videos, and emails are of Google servers. I wish I could say it was easy, but that would be a gross deception

Has anyone heard when, or if, old Spreadsheets will be able to be converted to the new format?

I would like to see Microsoft leverage Azure and Office 365 to create and deploy a kick-ass "full Office in the cloud" product. Imagine: For $100-$150 per year, a user could, through any browser, have access to all their files in SkyDrive and the complete Office suite through a connected Azure site.

There are two routes to take with regard to pricing and offerings; the first would take the form of a tiered-access system: "Basic" would include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. "Advanced" would add Outlook and Access. "Premium" would add Lync and Visio. Any other products could be added to "Advanced" or "Premium" accounts for a nominal fee. A second possible pricing methodology could be the "a-la-carte" approach where each user, upon account creation or activation, adds access to an individual productivity program for a nominal fee (ie., $10 for Word, $10 for Excel, $25 for Access). These fees, when summed, would create the annual account fee for the user. Mid-year cancellations and additions would be possible on a pro-rata basis.

This is an intellectual exercise, as I understand that this would seriously disrupt the traditional income streams for Microsoft. However, this approach would aggressively combat both the rise of Google Drive and the notion that Microsoft is too Windows-dependent. There are many businesses and individuals that use Office and do so productively. If Microsoft could give them the piece of mind that Office will be available to them regardless of platform or browser selection, it is possible that many more may stay. #microsoft   #office365   #azure

Could I call CryptGenRandom to get entropic data from user touch points in Win 8.1? #cryptography   #Windows

Did anyone else lose the ability to create folders in the app launcher? Using version 39.0.2171.94

When I have an internet connection, the folders show up, but they disappear when I'm offline. I'll log it in the product forms regardless

I love my Surface Pro! It's light enough to carry on my daily travels yet powerful enough to complete any task I might be given. Additionally, it operates without compromises when disconnected frying the internet. #microsoftsurface

I love that Google keeps adding more and more features their location-based software but, after a month and a half, they still can't figure out that I use a transit train, not a bus.

I love the new Google Spreadsheets! To Googlers: great job on the update and thank you for offline access!

Using Twitter or Google+ on a 2GB RAM Chromebook is painful.

I'm glad to see they're making 4GB models now because that should be the norm. #chromeos #chromebook

Google Cloud Print is a mess. I try to print something from my Chromebook and I have to go to my Windows laptop, add the printer to my account, then wait for the changes to register on my Chromebook. This is true for both wireless and wired printers.

No one can rationally argue that Google Cloud Print, as currently configured, is functioning as desired or optimally. It's broken and Google needs to come up with a better alternative.

Once again, we had a phenomenal happy hour experience. The beer list is extensive; the server was attentive; and our food was excellent. We've never had a negative experience and this confirms that history.

We came here for an afternoon drink on a hot, sunny day and the atmosphere and beverages were perfectly refreshing. The house margarita was well prepared.

I've been here several times for both lunch and happy hour. The food is uninspiring (though the crab cakes were excellent) for the most part. It might not be an excellent dining establishment but it's a good place to grab a drink after work.

Some of the best BBQ around! The pork shoulder is fantastic; the meat is very tender and the wet sauce strikes the proper balance between spiciness and flavor. I think the pasta salad is an excellent complement to any of the sauces, nicely balancing the heat with coolness and freshness.

The front lobby and main reception area sport a trendy, yet comfortable, feel and match the hotel's effort to draw both the professional and personal guests. The rooms are immaculately furnished, with comfortable space for work, small dining area, and very comfortable beds. Additionally, the continental breakfast is very, very good.
